Title: Natolia Olim Asia Minor
Set in a page of Italian text, this map is from the 1598 Galignani edition of Magini's "Geographia Cioe ...". Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617) was born in Padua, Italy, and studied medicine, mathematics, astronomy and philosophy at the University of Bologna where he was later to become a professor of astronomy. He corresponded with many of the renowned figures of the age including Ortelius, Tycho Brahe, Galileo and Johanes Kepler. He authored various works on astronomy and also produced the first printed atlas of Italy, which was published posthumously by his son Fabio.     (id:98195)
